What is the best type of iron supplements to take for my low iron levels?

Many people suffer from iron deficiency. Some common symptoms include extreme fatigue, weakness and pale skin. Most people with iron deficiency cannot get their required amount through diet alone and thus, iron supplements are essential.

Supplements for low iron need to be taken for at least 6 months to get your levels back to normal, then a few months after that to maintain levels. Most iron supplements on the market are either poorly absorbed (leading to higher rates of side effects and discontinuation), or they are too expensive (upwards of $90/month). At Longevity Com- pounding Pharmacy, we make custom iron supplements that are highly absorbed (up to 4 times better absorbed than commercially available supplements, such as Palafer!), cost effective, and tailored for your needs.
